The California Air Resources Board may be inadvertently drawing the incorrect conclusion that low LEV III evaporative emission levels are being achieved for plastic fuel tank-equipped vehicles using E10 fuel...more
Steel fuel tanks provide cost-effective, fully recycled zero-emission solutions for hybrid vehicles including plug-in hybrids. Steel's superior strength and stiffness for pressurized applications and its design and manufacturing flexibility for integration are unmatched by other fuel tank materials.
When the environmental benefits of steel fuel tanks are combined with steel's innovations in design flexibility, manufacturability, durability, cost competitiveness, and support services, today's steel tanks truly offer "performance with environmental responsibility."
1/4/2013 - Cover will manage the technical and market development initiatives, and leading technology transfer of steel fuel tank design and benefits.
1/11/2012 - An increase in evaporative emissions may be on the horizon if ARB doesn't consider real-world alcohol fuels for LEV III standards.
8/1/2011 - Lightweight fuel tanks will help reduce vehicle mass and meet sealed system performance requirements.
6/29/2011 - Because steel fuel tank walls are impermeable to hydrocarbons, there will be no difficulty in meeting ARB’s rigid evaporative emission limits with the new test protocol!
